    Gateway 500 is not for your car, only 100 & 300 and possibly the new gateway 5.

    Does your car have a MFSW with MODE button etc. If so I would seriously consider a Dension gateway 5.

    It has Ipod/USB/AUX and bluetooth interfaces all in the same unit with integration into the steering wheel and drivers DIS, but it requires a MFSW to use it.

    Just FYI - I ordered a Dension Gateway 5 3 weeks ago for my A4 Avant and I've been told by the dealer that there is a software problem which is currently being resolved. Apparently they are writing new software which should be available some time next week - I will keep you posted!

    I have the same car as you, this is what i have .


    Audi oem bluetooth (nothing better IMO)

    Xcar link interface ( non ipod) but this is the one you would need.

    Audi iPod Interface::AUDI::XCarLink


    You could get them both for less than 300 anf either fit yourself or pay someone to do it should take a couple of hours at the most .

    Does the Xcarlink display song titles like the dension kits do? I like the idea of fitting a dension kit and just using a usb stick and having all the song and album text, or I might just retro RNS-E.

    I have audi bluetooth and it works very well with my iphones (4 and 3gs)

    The ipod xcarlink as far as i know it does show song title artist info, i have the Mp3 one not the ipod as i don't do anything apple .

    Like you say OEM bluetooth works the best, especially with the roof down .
